WHY WOULD WE HAVE A DOUBLE PROBATE COURT REQUIREMENT?

WHY WOULD WE HAVE A DOUBLE PROBATE IN MIAMI-DADE OR BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA?

I received a call where the grandmother and grandfather, owning everything jointly, passed away, leaving everything to their only child by will. Many years passed and nothing was done regarding probate court, hiring a Miami-Dade or Probate Attorney, nor transferring these real estate assets; then the daughter, an only child passed away too. Now her two sons need to hire a Miami-Dade Probate Attorney and do two probates at the same time; creating double the work. This is complicated by searching for documents that are very old and very necessary.

AT ALLY GLASER, PA., WHAT IS INVOLVED IN OPENING A MIAMI-DADE OR BROWARD COUNTY PROBATE CASE?

At Ally Glaser, PA, we do both Dade and Broward Probates with over twenty- years of experience and ease and familiarity. I love probate cases, but they do take time and money which could have been prevented with good estate planning. 

IS PROBATE IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY OR BROWARD COUNTY SIMPLE?

No, Probate Court involvement in both Broward and Miami-Dade County are not simple. The courts are overcrowded as many elderly people retire and die in Florida. This leads to more delays for probate administrations to be completed. In addition, because of the increased number of fraudulent claims to estates, both courts have increased their requirements and documents, thus making the process more complicated. 

DOES ESTATE PLANNING PREVENT PROBATE IN BOTH MIAMI- DADE COUNTY AND BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA?

Yes, if done correctly, estate planning can prevent probate court involvement from being needed. Thus, the loved ones, minor children, grown children and spouses with separate assets can have an easier time handling their mother’s, father’s, or loved one’s passing. With estate planning, the family deals with the assets privately. With probate court, all matters must be approved by a Judge.
